I have very mixed feelings on this debut story. I have no doubt is could be a fact based life just from my limited study of this era & knowledge of the British snobbery prevalent at this time (well-documented.) My issue is the switching back & forth in year events, for me, too many characters I had trouble establishing in my mind. At times this seemed like a 'romance novel' set against the backdrop of the invasion of China; a bit of mystery.
